I made this awl to make it easier to poke the centers of logs where I want to center drill them. I was using a scriber but the head is so small it got to hurting when doing a bunch of blanks.
I made this one out of a piece of Ironwood from south of Tuscon,Az.
The shaft is hardened drill rod and it has a Win.30-30 spent cartridge in the back and a brass ferule to dress it up.
It is finished with EEE and Shellawax
